Wenger: 'It is a massive result for the team'

Last updated : 27 December 2009 By Chris Parry

"Aston Villa are a team which makes you nervy because you can be dominant and lose the game.

"You could think 'we were dominant and did not take advantage of it, so let's be cautious' - or you gamble a bit try to push it further and score. That is what I did."

"It is a massive result for the team. When you look where we were a few weeks ago, credit to the team, they didn't give up when everybody has written us off. We kept going and that shows that the team has shown mental strength.

"This team is talented, is hungry, has a great spirit and for me they deserve to be successful. However, we have not won yet anything. It makes it interesting now.

"We are in a strong position. We can have belief, but it is a long way to go and we have to keep our feet on the ground and continue to improve together."
